Overview

A look at where novel polymer chemistry is heading

Covering patent literature and process improvements in twenty-four polymer subject areas, Patent Applications: A Tool for Identifying Advances in Polymer Chemistry R &D provides researchers with current polymer research not yet published in journals or patents. The review and analysis by the author offers a more thorough understanding and concise package of the patent application. In addition extensive structure depictions of intermediates, products, and derivatives allow the researcher to better visualize material applications both in and beyond polymer chemistry.

The coverage includes the following polymeric categories:

  • Additives
  • Adhesives
  • Cosmetics
  • Crystalline Materials
  • Dyes
  • Electrically Active Polymers
  • Energetic Polymers
  • Engineered Plastics
  • Fibers
  • Fuel Cells
  • Improved Synthetic Methods
  • Initiators/Modifiers
  • Light Emitting Polymers
  • Medical Polymers
  • Nitric Oxide Releasing Agents
  • Optical
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Photoresists
  • Phototherapy
  • Recording Materials
  • Stents
  • Sutures
  • Tissue Replacement
  • Viscoelastic Polymers

With this thorough and accurate survey, DeRosa provides a practical resource for polymer and organic chemists, as well as graduate students, to identify research and market trends, and to stay up-to-date on current developments in the field.

Meet the Author

THOMAS F. DEROSA, a former senior scientist and senior intellectual property officer at Texaco, has published forty-nine U.S. patents relevant to new chemical methods, polymerization techniques, and product development. Before he was at Texaco, Dr. DeRosa was a senior chemist at AlliedSignal Corporation, where he worked on fluoropolymers and other polymers, and also worked at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals Howmedica Division as a project chemist, preparing urethane block copolymers. He is currently an assistant professor at the Borough of Manhattan Community College of the City University of New York, and is expected to develop a large student research group.
